Joining the RMGC

Under a long-standing arrangement, which dates back to the early 1900s, all those wishing to join the RMGC are required to be members of the Marsa Sports Club (MSC) and are bound by its constitution. As a member of the MSC you (and your family if you join in that category) are able to make use of MSC’s other sporting facilities together with the swimming pool, bars and restaurants. The use of the various sporting facilities is subject to payment of fees determined by the MSC’s Committee of Management. If you wish to apply for membership of the RMGC, you must apply in writing using the standard form available from the Club Secretariat and provide evidence of MSC membership.  You may be required to meet the Captain (or the Vice-Captain in his absence). Successful applicants will have their applications processed and will then be invoiced and, upon settlement, will become Members. You are able to play golf during the joining process, on payment of the requisite Green Fees. If you are at least 18 years old, you must be proposed by one and be seconded by another Full Member of RMGC – both of whom must sign the form and confirm that they know you personally. If you are not known by Full Members of the RMGC, you must produce a letter of reference from your home club overseas. You can choose to join the RMGC at any time of the year paying a pro-rata membership fee in the first calendar year. The RMGC offers different categories of membership to those aged over 18.

Associate and Full Membership 2020

If you are at least 25 years old, you can apply to become an Associate Member with the same rights as a Full Member, except that you cannot vote at elections or sit on any committees.

As an Associate Member you are required to hold a Membership Card as evidence of membership. This can be used as a debit card providing a preferential discount on catering services. You may vote at a General Meeting, make unlimited use the Golf Course and the facilities of the Clubhouse, play in Club Competitions and enjoy special rates for hiring equipment.

After two years of continuous membership, you automatically become a Full Member benefiting from a lower cost of annual membership as well as reduced green fees for your guests.

The current rate for Associate Membership is €1896 p.a. All members pay an extra €5 p.a. for Third Party Insurance.

Young Adult Membership 2020

If you are at least 18 and less than 25 years old, you can apply to become a Young Adult Member in the same way as if you were applying to be an Associate Member (see above). You may use the Golf Course and the facilities of the Clubhouse, play in Club Competitions at the discretion of the Captain’s Committee and enjoy special rates for hiring equipment.  You do not have voting rights but can invite guests.

The current rate for membership is €632 p.a. plus an extra €5 p.a. for Third Party Insurance.

Country Membership 2020

Country Membership is available at the discretion of the BOM if you have been a Full Member of the RMGC for at least 3 consecutive years, have not been resident in the Maltese Islands in the last 12 months and you are already a Country Member of the MSC.

The current membership fee is €171 p.a. with an extra €5 p.a. for Third Party Insurance.   You may visit the Maltese Islands for no more than 3 months in any calendar year when you may use the facilities of the clubhouse and play golf at the current guest rate of €50 per round on weekdays and €54 per round at weekends. Purchase of a debit card providing a preferential discount on catering services is optional.

Junior Membership 2020

If you are under 18 without a handicap, you are expected to join the Junior Academy. A special application form is available from the Secretariat. You must be a member of the MSC. The Junior Academy arranges special competitions and coaching sessions for Juniors to help their development, to understand golf rules/etiquette and to obtain handicaps. Membership costs €155 plus an extra €5 for Third Party Insurance for the 2020/21 season starting in September 2020.

If your already have a handicap you can join the RMGC directly as a Junior Member in the same way and with the same membership fee as a Junior Adult. You may play in most competitions but cannot invite guests. There are some restrictions on your use of the golf course and clubhouse according to your age. If you are under 12 or with a handicap >28 (for a boy) or >36 (for a girl), you have no standing on the golf course so must be accompanied by an adult player with a recognised handicap. Upon reaching the age of 18 you can apply to become a Young Adult Member without the need for an introduction.

N.B. Please ensure you join Marsa Sports Club prior to joining the Royal Malta Golf Club.
